Please follow this link and take a look at their newly revised web site and see the concept drawings for future additions to the museum.

It's going to be a beautiful addition.
I clicked on the web cam, nothing came up.

The web cam icon should prompt you to download an application which will let you view 7 (?) different live views from the museum grounds.

That will look great when finished, on another note, I hear that the NS Coal Dock will be cleaning up the hill side between their new office and the museum. That will make a great improvement, the hillside has been an eyesore when traveling down the river or looking up from Bridge St. It is nice to see them trying to be good neighbors.

Tug?

I'll assume that you are speaking about a tug boat?

I know nothing at all. Sorry.

It was built here in Ashtabula harbor, they got it from someplace in Michigan I think. It was in the Star Beagle awhile ago.

I don't know a thing about it.

Who has it? Where is it? I wonder if there is a preservation group to work on this?

I'll have to a make a call or two.

I think it's stored behind the boat business across the street from the Crow's Nest. Lighthouse something or other.
